Ever since agriculture was taken up by mankind as an organized pursuit, producing enough grain to make it to the next harvest season has always been a challenge for the farming communities. With falling water tables, soil erosion, plateauing grain yields and rising temperatures, it is increasingly becoming difficult to expand production fast enough to cater to the booming population growth. Food systems and food security have always been a matter of geopolitics and it is becoming all the more important in the contemporary times.

Cambridge Food Security Forum (CamFSF) and the Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange (CUSPE) bring to you this lecture on the geopolitical nuances of food systems.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. David Nally, Department of Geography, University of Cambridge.

The event will be followed by a panel discussion and drinks reception.
